Voyager music composed, arranged, recorded and mixed by Digi Hartatak. Features drum track "galaxy" by Pablo Perez, Vocals by Deadman and Nay Nay. Samples courtesy of NASA, the White House archives, Freesound and other forgotten internet sources. Album artwork by Pablo Perez.
Based on the voyager space craft's golden record and the sounds on it. The diagram drawn on it was used in an image synth to create sounds and patterns for this and other future projects.
Voyagers are us and the sounds we make which are hurtling through space into the void in the intro.
The Golden Record is encoded on one side with binary graphical information including our location and how to play the other side. The other side and a stylus play the sounds in these 2 tracks.
Xenophobe Flash Back is the short segment before Sirens of Alpha Centauri which depicts astronaut's encountering bogey objects and the siren's calling by Nay Nay from a distant neighbor star.
Answering the Call is more sounds of the golden record and sounds of space mixed with some human soul music by Deadman, space is expressed in the meaning of outerspace and in atmosphere in the depiction of environmental ambient sound splicing.
The singularity is the eventual outcome of existence, man's discovery of orange soil and dark matter as portrayed by the percussion sequencing of Pablo Perez mixed with sounds of moon explorers and launch control.
The Deep Freeze, one of three options of oblivion for this universe. This is a time lapse of the final moments in the last part of the inhabitable artificial universe created near the end of time and it's theme music as we fade out of existence.

One of my favorites from Digi. Awesome grooves (particularly on tracks 1 & 4) cool samples and a killer concept. Made me feel just like Laika strumming a balalaika through a luminous balaclava. Woof woof.

Production is improving... good you finally worked out all those cool "lofi" noises and crap that you felt obligated to use. This has some great little hooks and nice beats. Presented well also, nice concept.
